I'm trying to do away with some high energy users.(uneeded pumps) I would like to run a manifold off my return line to go to my UV,Chiller, Calcium reactor. I would like to pipe some of my over flow water direct to my skimmer. Does anyone have any pics of such a set up? If you do could you please post them? Ted:arg:

could you post a pic of your plumbing setup now?

manifold setups do work, but they are problematic to get setup properly in the beginning.

what kind of skimmer do you have? you can make a gravity fed skimmer, but you need to make sure the skimmer body itself can handle the increased flow. if you have at least 7feet of head between the tank and the sump you can even try a venturi powered gravity fed skimmer. tricky, but cool.
